Talking about Stray Dog (1949) with special guest Joyce Wu
On this doggish episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George invite Joyce Wu to discuss Stray Dog (1949), directed by Akira Kurosawa and starring, of course, Toshiro Mifune. Topics discuss? Horniness; isolation, alienation, AND ennui; the shadow-self; people are bad; ACAB, have a beer; sucking popsicles. Also, Kurosawa can direct the shit out of anything.
Topics not discussed? The origins of the bicameral mind.
Joyce Wu is a writer and director based in Los Angeles. She was an inaugural member of the Made in NY Writers Room, a fellowship developed by the WGA East in partnership with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, where she developed and wrote a half-hour comedy pilot based on her web series Mr. Right. Her first feature film She Lights Up Well is currently available on iTunes.
